Summary: Just want to note that the laptop WAS NO FUNCTIONING when it arrived. WIFI DID NOT WORK. I had to manually look into it on another computer and flash the BIOS. This means if I didn't have another computer, I could not get this one to work! Horrible!
Summary: I had to get a Windows based PC for work, and I made a terrible decision selecting this one. Since I'm a little spoiled by how well Mac's work, I find this laptop a complete disappointment compared to my Mac Book Air. The build quality is flimsy, the speed is slow, and the monitor's color is off. I barely even touch it now since it is so annoyingly slow. I do regret very much about this purchase. I should've spend a little more to get a more decent PCI.
Summary: It's thin and the laptop size is perfect to take around. However, when I'm actively typing on it, the fan is pretty loud. When I'm not actively typing on it, there is no sound so it's this constant back and forth of the fan getting loud then soft then loud then soft etc... Additionally, the mouse pad is similar to a mac, however, when you press down on it it's pretty loud...I'm trying to get used to all these things.
Summary: This it's very difficul for me make a commentary about this laptop. It's really nice but since the moment I got it, the charger isn't in the box, JJJTech trait me like a thief, anyway they send me the replacement charger (like a concecion they said), but it's seems that the battery doesn't work because the laptop only work connected. JJJtech said I'm a laier and now I have something that doesn't work and nobody to help me.
Summary: This computer runs very slow! I'm a college student on a budget and all I wanted was a lightweight laptop for basic use such as browsing the internet and using Microsoft Word. I've been highly disappointed! The computer freezes all the times and even watching YouTube videos is a struggle.
Summary: I travel overseas a great deal, and once there am often taking multiple trains to get to various business committments, for instance in Europe. So every ounce of weight I can save off my luggage and briefcase is critical to me. I purchased the Acer Ultra-Thin for its very light weight and thin profile which hardly takes up any space in my briefcase. This computer and a lightweight external CD/DVD player purchased separately are still way lighter than most laptops.
Summary: It is a very nice laptop. This is my second Acer Aspire S3. My first one come with SDD HD and it is fast and very lite. My wife used it mostly for school and she love light and fast. I worked in IT field and I have show this laptop to my co-worker and they were amaze how thin and light the laptop and with SDD HD it even faster. I am don't play game on this laptop.
Terrible processor. Extremely slow and constantly freezes

Summary: I wanted a temporary lower end laptop so I went for this. Terrible processor. Extremely slow and constantly freezes. The touchpad is extremely sensitive, so it switches applications when you are working in one. I have not even had the laptop for 6 months and it shutdown yesterday and refuses to turn on. I would discourage anyone from purchasing thIs.
